Police and council enquiry services now available at the Town Hall

January 2, 2013, 12:28 pm

From today (2nd January 2013) police enquiry services are available at the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare, alongside council services provided by North Somerset Council.

The Town Hall is now a central hub which makes it easier for members of the public to access both council and police services.

Chief Superintendent Julian Moss said: “It makes sense to provide one central location where people can access public services, whether they are reporting a crime, seeking police advice or wanting to talk to someone about housing benefits or council tax.

“We are looking forward to working more closely with our colleagues in the Town Hall to provide a better and more joined up service.”

Councillor Nigel Ashton, Leader of North Somerset Council, said: “It has always been our intention to create a hub for public services at the Town Hall so I’m pleased that we have been able to make this happen so quickly, within three months of the new facility opening.

“Accommodating the police extends the range of services available under one roof for local people, and also makes it easier for us to work together forging an even closer working relationship to build safer and stronger communities in North Somerset. It also makes financial and operational sense for both organisations.”

The police station in Weston-super-Mare will continue to house the local neighbourhood, patrol and CID teams. However police enquiries will be dealt with at the Town Hall.

The opening hours are as follows:

Weston-super-Mare Police Enquiries
